Rookie Wide Receiver Mike Williams Not Satisfied With Early Accomplishments

Rookie wide receiver Mike Williams fell to the fourth round of the 2010 draft this past April for reasons unrelated to physical talent and ability. Injuries and character concerns were responsible for sliding down teams’ boards. So it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Williams has for now earned himself a starting role in Tampa Bay’s young offense. It certainly doesn’t to him.

Williams, who will be the team’s ‘X’ receiver during Tampa Bay’s first preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, had this to say about the accomplishment:

“I’m not satisfied. Even if I was to go out there and be No. 1 on opening day, that’s not my goal,” Williams said. "My goal is to be rookie of the year and help this team. I’ll be satisfied after that and proving all those people wrong about me off the field.

“I’m not satisfied with that [depth chart]. That’s just a step toward the right direction.”

Talk is cheap, but for now, Bucs’ fans have to be excited about the young kid’s confidence, talent and drive to be great.
